Nursing Research

The School of Nursing is committed to different, but related, aspects of research education. Traditionally, and correctly, one of the key roles of a University is to promote the generation of new knowledge to help solve clinical problems. This has meant that often research activity has been seen as something undertaken only by elite individuals within a particular discipline. However, all health professionals in their everyday lives are attempting to provide effective care and efficient solutions to clinical problems. This means that all graduates of our programs need to have skills in accessing and understanding research and applying it appropriately in their clinical work.
